Since moving from L.A. to Texas in March, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and her family have been spending most of their time outside - and for good reason!
The Sopranos alum and podcast host, 40, recently teamed up with her friend and interior designerto give the backyard of her new Spanish-style home the family-focused makeover of her dreams, using furnishings and deocr from CB2.
"We bought this house because of the outdoor space. I mean, it's what completely sold us," Sigler, who shares sons Beau, 7, and Jack, 3, with, tells PEOPLE.
"When we were planning to move from Los Angeles to Texas, we really needed to feel like our house was checking all the boxes to make it worth it," she continues. "We're big entertainers, and are in the pool from morning until night, so we wanted a space to hold all of it. And this house had it."

Opinion: Another day, another record as Simone Biles wins seventh US gymnastics title
Simone Biles and Japan's Kohei Uchimura are the only gymnasts to win every major international title in an entire, four-year Olympic cycle.You didn’t need to be a gymnastics fan to know before the meet even started that she would win the U.S. championships– for a record seventh time, mind you. The Olympic trials are still three weeks away, and she can go ahead and buy her plane ticket for Tokyo now because, well, duh.
"From there, we just realized that we could stack out the entire space in CB2 and make it a dream come true," she says. "I'm obsessed with everything."
Beyond the sectional, the backyard now has plenty of furniture for resting and relaxing, includingby the pool, and daybeds around the firepit and a on the back deck, which Sigler says the boys take turns in when they have their iPad time for the day.
However, her favorite piece of furniture in the space is the massive, which is surrounded by her many plants.
"I actually didn't even understand how beautiful it was until it got delivered," Sigler says of the outdoor table. "I love it. And we have extra chairs in our garage for when we have more people - it's so big that we can fit 10 of us around the table."

While Sigler's children are obsessed with swinging on the, they're also big fans of the fire pit area, she says.
"It's just big and cozy and the kids love it," she says. "And they feel very special when they have friends of theirs over, that they can take them down there and make some s'mores."
Giving the kids more space to hang out and play was one of the main reasons that Sigler and Dykstra decided to move the family to Texas. They purchased this home, which is located about 25 minutes outside of Austin, back in October, and moved on March 1.
"I used to fantasize that I would get to a certain level of my career where I'd be able to live somewhere like Austin, Texas, and then pop back in [to L.A.] for work," Sigler says. "And I think, like many people did during COVID, we kind of reassessed our life and what makes us happy. And it was kind of like, what are we waiting for? Let's do this. Let's go. Now is the time. We don't need permission from anyone or anything to tell us when we can do this."
Britney Spears Felt Her Conservatorship Was an 'Oppressive and Controlling Tool Against Her' in 2016: Report
According to the New York Times, a probate investigator concluded that Britney Spears' conservatorship remained necessary after speaking with the singer, her doctors and her conservators five years agoOn Tuesday, The New York Times released a report citing sealed court documents from 2016 in which the newspaper quoted from records, transcripts and reports from conversations between Spears and a probate investigator in her case. The documents - which the outlet said provide only a "snapshot" of Spears' "sentiments and situation" - were meant to remain confidential.
Though she'd never made such a big move before, Sigler says that she had a couple friends who moved to the area at the same time - including actresses Becca Tobin and Haylie Duff - which helped with the transition.
"It definitely made a difference to kind of have a little bit of a tribe here already," she says. "And that we all have little kids getting acclimated to a new space."
So far, Sigler says, the kids have been adapting wonderfully, and are loving all the room they now have for playing - which was harder to come by in L.A. Plus, Sigler says, their new neighbors have been so welcoming and kind.
"It's been really good for our family," Sigler says. "I feel like, over the past year with COVID and everything in quarantine, while we did the best we could, it kind of chipped away at us. There were stressful moments and hard moments for each of us in our own way. And so kind of having this fresh start and the big adventure to do for the four of us, I think offered a lot of repair for that."
"It was an opportunity for us to kind of come together," she continues. "And we feel really fortunate we were able to offer it to ourselves and our family. This is going to be a home that means a whole lot to us, and we'll see where life takes us."
